Cloning is done extensively in beef production, and the answer is that it tastes the same.
One-thousand times no.
I work in tech and routinely watch technical content. Mostly videos from conferences, meetups, howtos, etc. I do it at 1.5x most of the time, sometimes 2x. This is because I am looking for interesting (to me) bits such as interesting (novel, unorthodox, etc) solutions or just want to quickly rehash key points of things I haven't dealt with in a while. It saves me time and I still can accomplish what I set out to. What is wrong with my approach? Care to elaborate?
... We can certainly get there, but it isn't going to be cheap for a while yet.
Indeed. Furthermore, it will require a number of subsystems responsible for data collection and processing to be implemented in HA fashion. Possibly on both hardware and software level. Short of that, a SPOF could lead to some nasty scenarios. That means significantly higher production/maintenance costs than a comparable 'standard' car. I for one enjoy driving my car myself and have no interest in swapping it for a self-driving one until the day I can completely disconnect from the driving part without rational fear. Sort of like I normally would when boarding a commercial airliner.
